Engineering Noise Control

 

We provide a full range of noise control services, from noise measurement and monitoring to predictive noise impact modelling and noise mitigation design and installation. These services are provided to the industrial, construction, leisure and entertainment industries.

To design for noise control, it is important to understand potential noise sources, the frequencies generated, the types of noise, and both airborne and structure-borne paths.

Designing for noise control can be difficult because noise sources are not necessarily apparent at the design stage or even at post-construction. Noise paths may not always be obvious in many cases where careful design is not considered, so trial and error attempts (without professional advice) to mitigate noise can, in fact, sometimes make matters worse.

The practice of engineering noise control demands a solid understanding of the fundamentals of acoustics, the practical application of current noise control technology and the underlying theoretical concepts.
